Maybe this is a good thing because it's happening so early in winter, but I came down with a cold and being sick has a funny way of putting a damper on things. This is especially true when you have to deal with your life rather than lay down and feel sorry for yourself, which was my standard MO for much of pre-fatherhood life. In that sense parenthood is a good thing, right? No more whiners, at least not in this household. Or rather, whining is allowable (sort of) as long as you take care of business and get the job done.
Fortunately for us, many of the important issues have been dealt with and we are ready for winter. The biggest things that needs to be attended to now are the daily duties, and don't get me wrong, there are plenty of those, especially with hockey season in full swing. It's just that they may come with a little whining on the part of dad, but what else is new?
Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Simon Wilde for the pic.
